Suggested Ordinance and Regulations Covering Public Swimming Pools.
American Public Health Association, Inc., New York, NY.
In preparing this publication, the Joint Committee on Swimming Pools and Bathing Places intended to promote the proper installation of public swimming pool facilities and their efficient operation. Objectives were--(1) to be concerned with the development of realistic and reasonable minimum standards to safeguard the health and safety of swimmers and bathers, (2) to develop standards that had some degree of flexibility, and (3) to produce a legal instrument that could be used as a guide by government in exacting minimum swimming pool standards. This ordinance and these regulations, if enacted, should serve to minimize the spread of infections, reduce injuries through elimination of hazards, and promote public swimming pools as attractive and safe places for enjoyment, recreation, and physical fitness. While this report is in the form of suggested legislation, it is also a guide and may be used in the evaluation of the design, construction, operation and maintenance of public swimming pools. (RK)
